Poverty, Pathology and Pills

Dr Felicity Thomas is a Senior Research Fellow on the Cultural Contexts of Health at the University of Exeter.
After working for several years in the international development sector, she pursued doctoral research on the impacts of HIV and AIDS on rural livelihoods and social support networks in southern Africa.
More recently, her work has focused on understanding and addressing the social and cultural factors that perpetuate health inequalities.
She is particularly interested in understanding how certain health 'conditions' become medicalised, and the ways that this inter-relates with poverty, disadvantage and health-related inequalities.
Dr Thomas is Co-Director of the WHO Collaborating Centre on Culture and Health and works closely with the WHO Regional Office for Europe.
